As the spring budget looms, you might be wondering how much Jeremy Hunt - the main decision-maker as Chancellor of the Exchequer - is worth.

Support for the Tories has fallen to its lowest level on record, which has fuelled reports that the chancellor will be hoping to woo voters with tax giveaways in tomorrow's budget.

But how much is he worth?

Jeremy Hunt was previously the Health Secretary under David Cameron and Theresa May.

The Conservative MP for South West Surrey assumed the senior treasury position after the previous Chancellor Kwasi Kwarteng was sacked by Liz Truss after damaging the economy.

What does the Chancellor of the Exchequer do?

The Chancellor is the government's chief financial minister and is responsible for raising revenue through taxation or borrowing and controlling public spending.

This makes the Chancellor one of the most senior ministers in the government with the Prime Minister being its head.

In recent years, the position has been held by several British political giants such as Gordon Brown, George Osborne, Philip Hammond, Rishi Sunak and Kwasi Kwarteng.

What is Jeremy Hunt's net worth? 

Jeremy Hunt's net worth is estimated to be around £14 million, according to reports by the Express.

How did Jeremy Hunt make his money?

Hunt made his fortune selling of shares in an education company called Hotcourses in 2017, which he helped found.

He has also worked in the private sector such as when he held a job as a management consultant.

Through his role as an MP for South West Surrey, he takes home a salary of over £84,000, something that is set to rise in April.

The Sunday Times Rich List values Mr Sunak's fortune at £730m.

Philip Hammond, who served under Theresa May had a more modest fortune at £8.2 million but this still made him one of the richest serving MPs at the time.

In 2009, David Cameron's Chancellor George Osborne was said to have a personal fortune of £4 million. 

The previous Chancellor, Kwasi Kwarteng is estimated to be worth between £800,000 to £1.5 million based on various sources.
